Gold Pan Saloon - Breckenridge
Immersed in mining history, the Gold Pan Saloon and Restaurant offers a glimpse of a "rough and ready" Breckenridge, when at any moment the swinging saloon doors might slap open and admit a thirsty prospector.
Built around 1879 as the Herman Strauss Saloon, the bar side of this complex has spent most of its days as a smoke-filled, whiskey-scented dining and amusement hall. The most well-known of these establishments was the Palace Restaurant which attracted customers with a large fish aquarium in the front window, stocked with "speckled beauties". Documented as the most continuous operating liquor license west of the Mississippi, the building has also served as a dry goods store and as a gas station.
Over the years, the Gold Pan Bar has been one of the first saloons visited by a local. Locally owned and operated, the Gold Pan provides visitors with a rustic atmosphere to relax and enjoy a drink and delicious food.

Skip this one if you're looking for breakfast. Very poor service. Food was overcooked yet cold. Many other great options in Breck.
Actually, The First Ward in St Joseph MO lays claim to being the oldest. 1878
